I started mapping NI Komplete Cuba. Their Conga set has 3 congas: Tumba, Conga and Quinto.
The problem is, Dorico only provides two congas: high and low. The way Dorico works is that percussion map is not related to a kit, but to the underlying instruments*. That means I can’t use two high congas, as that would map one instrument to two midi notes. In addition, one can not add custom instruments (without editing the factory xmls).
So, what is the “officially” recommended way to solve this? Is there even any other option than using some other instrument, which must not be in the VST so there is no clash in percussion map?
*I’m not sure that design is meaningful. At least for percussion kits, I think it would make more sense to have mapping done directly in the kit. In essence, percussion kit dialog should be able to do everything from start to end - defining playback techniques (even adding user defined ones if needed) and mapping them to VST, and probably on the kit level, not instrument level
